Emigration Records[edit | edit source]

Emigration records (documente emigrare) were kept in Romania starting in 1875 and continue to the present. The records include lists of emigrants to America, other areas of Europe, and other parts of the world. Records were also kept of immigrants from Europe. These records can be used to determine the place of origin of an immigrant ancestor who came from Romania. Also, Romanians can use the records to find family members on collateral lines who left Romania.

Coverage: 20-30% of the population can be found in emigration records.

Content: List names of persons who emigrated, birth dates, birthplaces, names of relationships, occupations, former places of residence, destinations, and dates when permission was given to emigrate.

Accessing the Records: Regional archives hold these emigration records. Archives usually do not do research, so a researcher must be hired. The Family History Library does not have any Romanian emigration records.[1]
